  1. Fr peter has been fantastic given up his time every evening for prays I I would like to say a huge thank you to him. It has been very moving and touching . Well done Fr. Peter

  2. What wonderful work you are doing. Highest of praise to every one associated with beautiful May alter, flowers, candles . It is so uplifting to watch Mass each morning and evening prayer. I would like to suggest putting a couple of seats outside Pastoral centre to enable a person to sit during exposition of Blessed Sacrament. I would like to donate 100euro towards this or any way that would enrich our lives during these difficult times. Thanks to Fr. PETER and every one .

  3. Thank you Fr Peter, for your service during this sad time, my brother Eddie Fox which i saw in wheelchair outside your Church, never misses a Mass, we talk often as i live many miles away in AUSTRALIA, Our brother Pat Rip (Eddies twin) passed away from the virus, so hard on myself and Eddie, whole family. as we could not attend funeral. I had hoped to go and see all family in Ireland and England in September ,but this is not going to take place, , So sad when I am so far away, please take care, god bless everyone
